New Video: Russian Indie Rock Band Return with Brooding Yet Swooning New Single and Visuals

Much like it’s preceding single “Tell Me,” Dialogue’s latest single “By Your Side” is an moodily atmospheric single consisting of twinkling and shimmering synths, swirling electronics, four-on-the-floor drumming, brief blasts of plucked guitar chords and earnest and plaintive baritone in a swooning proclamation of love and devotion while further cementing their reputation for crafting material that sounds indebted to the classic 4AD Records sound.

The recently released video features fittingly moody and brooding visuals including the band preparing to record and record in a darkened studio, members of the band walking around their town and some of its quieter and lovelier sights and so on.

Motorama is a Russian indie rock quintet from Rostov-on-Don, a port city at Russia’s southwest corner, near the Caucasus. Formed in 2005, the band self-produced their records for several years before they got signed by French label Talitres Records in 2012 – and with their forthcoming effort Dialogues, which is slated for an October 22, 2016 release, the band reportedly expanding upon and cleaning up the sound that first won them international attention without removing the melancholy feel of the material.

Dialogue‘s latest single “Tell Me” has the band pairing atmospheric synths, a strutting and bopping bass line and plaintive vocals in a song that sounds as though it could have been released during 4AD Records heyday, complete with a wistful melancholy and an urgent, swooning Romanticism.
